  1. CORS for App Proxy

    There should be CORS setting available on App Proxy just like we have the CORS available for App Services.

    Making calls from Azure Apps into an Azure App Proxy App is a very common scenario, especially when on-prem applications are surfaced externally using App proxy.

    21 comments  ·  Application Proxy  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    We are looking at enabling a feature that focuses on supporting CORS preflight requests between two applications. This works by allowing you to configure the response and have App Proxy handle it on behalf of the app.

    A pre-requisite for this feature to work is that the user must be able to authenticate into the second application in order to avoid a CORS issue from the login flow into the second app.
    To avoid this the user will have to make sure they have already accessed the 2nd application before the CORS request, and has valid credentials. This should work for wildcard apps and can also be achieved by adding a fake link / image to the 2nd application in the first application.

    We would love to get your feedback on this requirement and if this is something that will fit your use case.

  2. Support for 3rd party EMM solutions when requiring device compliance

    We use Airwatch for managing mobile devices. We want to use conditional access policies to ensure the device has been marked as compliant by Airwatch before allowing access to certain applications.

    Currently Azure AD Conditional Access Policies only supports InTune for checking device compliance as described @ https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-conditional-access-policy-connected-applications#trusted-devices. This should be extended to support 3rd party EMM solutions.

    Thanks for your feedback. Microsoft is currently working with third party MDM providers to enable this scenario. We will update this thread once we have more information to share.

  3. Option to enforce authentication every time you access a SSO app (e.g. SaaS app)

    Add a option to enforce authentication every time you access a SSO app (e.g. SaaS):
    - Option could be possible per app
    - Option could be 1) re-enter password (ignore SSO) 2) guaranteed MFA prompt (ignore MFA token)

    Use case:
    Shared PCs, Personal Logins, SaaS App has sensitive payroll data, Concern: People don't log off -> anyone can walk to the PC and get into SaaS app via SSO. As of now even MFA doesn't help due to MFA token or Windows Hello strong auth. You could only play with token life-time.

  4. Conditional Access blocking Office Activation and signin.

    When the Conditional Access Policy is configured with All cloud Apps option, Office activation is also blocked, although there isn´t any cloud app dedicated for Office activation exclusion. Please create one dedicated cloud app for Office activation.

  5. Provide support for YubiKey / FIDO as the MFA

    Many other services (Google Apps, Facebook etc) now allow this and would be great to have in Azure AD.

  6. AADB2C: include username in JWT claims

    AADB2C supports either email addresses or usernames for accounts. If a directory uses usernames, you don't get that username as a claim in the JWT. This means an extra trip to Azure must be made to retrieve the username. Please consider including the username in the JWT.

  7. Password expiry notification for Azure AD joined devices?

    It would be great if a Password Expiry notification could be implement for full Windows 10 Azure AD-joined clients in the same way as the domain joined clients receive them. A notification that pops up at bottom-right corner of the screen. At the moment I wasn't able to find any way of enabling that.
    We use Azure Directory Sync - no ADFS.

  8. Go Direct to Password Reset from Sign-In/Sign-Up

    The Sign-in only policy allows the user to go directly to the password reset.

    The Sign-in/Sign-Up does not allow this. The user gets redirected back and you have to handle AADB2C90118.

    Reference: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41497158/azure-ad-b2c-self-service-password-reset-link-doesnt-work

    While this flow is useful for some people the opposite is also true. Please allow me to specify the password reset policy in my sign-in/sign-up policy so the round trip is not required if I don't want it.

  9. Make https://passwordreset.microsoftonline.com responsive design or app for password reset

    It would be nice, if the passwordreset.microsoftonline.com looked great on a mobile device as well as on a PC. It isn't responsive and looks weird on a phone. You have to pinch to see the text and textboxes on the page.

    Alternative Microsoft should consider integrating "Password Reset" / "Lockout" functionality in a new app or the existing Azure Authenticator app. This will notify the user about account lockout and also provide a way for the user to do a quick password reset a device. Of cause the user will need to answer a couple of questions, enter a pin…

  10. Get 'low license count' notification

    It would be beneficial to get a notification when license count gets to x number. We are syncing our users with DirSync and apply licenses based on group membership. When users get synced and we have no licenses, I have zero idea until someone comes to me that they cannot get logged in to O365.

  11. All Powershell/BASH/script Azure AD join

    For converting BOYD to Azure AD in the field w/o user intervention, we need a way for elevated accounts to be able to perform an Azure AD join of devices via script.... come on, this is the basics...

    Think of it as MDM self-enrollment... if not that, then give us a one-click way for users to self-enroll the device.

    Thanks for the feedback on this. There are several ways to do Azure AD join (OOBE, bulk enrollment and Autopilot) which provide a richer experience to join devices to Azure AD. We’re continuously working to enhance those, so currently this is unplanned for the near future. Please continue to vote to help us prioritize

  12. "Change password" policy

    Add a new Azure AD B2C policy that allows a signed-in user to change his or her password. Not the same as password reset.

    We are in the process of planning this feature and hope to have a preview available by the end of november. In the meantime, could you please respond to aadb2cpreview@microsoft.com with your responses to the following questions:

    - If you had a “password change” policy, what kind of information would you like to get back once the policy has been executed?
    - Would you prefer to have a policy that forces you to sign in first, and then asks you to change the password, or one that let’s you do it all on the same page?
    - Would you want an email to get sent out to the user whenever the password is changed?

  13. Utilize AAD Security Groups for Device "Additional Local Administrators" support

    Emulating the Intune Roles method with Assignments, Members and Scopes would be ideal. Also the ability to disable Global Admin access (limit to groups/scopes added).

    We’re currently working on this capability and will provide an update when it’s done.

    However, instead of expanding the “Additional Local administrators” setting, we will support adding AAD groups to Windows 10 local groups (.e.g Administrators, Remote Desktop Users) via MDM policy and elevate user privileges on logon. This will provide greater flexibility to assign different groups to different devices

  14. Allow more customization of the myapps.microsoft.com portal.

    Would be great if I could forward a subdomain to our myapps.microsoft.com portal. Instead of giving users a the microsoft.com URL, I want to give them one.theblaze.com.

    Second, would be great if there was a newsfeed widget at the top of the portal that could show an RSS feed of company news.

    Thanks so much for the feedback! Customizations of the My Apps portal for both end users and admins are on our roadmap. This includes providing the ability to re-arrange and group apps and as well as using a customizable domain.

    We are also looking to see if we can enable embedding other components like widgets. We’re still in process of validating options for this.
    Please keep sharing your feedback and ideas around this!

  15. Introspection endpoint for Azure Active Directory

    Hi,
    Times, there will be cases when the user logs out but the token associated with the user on the client doesn't expire and so when the Resource Servers/APIs invoked with these tokens gets serviced/honored. It would be great to have an introspection endpoint with AAD to check the validatity of the token (as mentioned in RFC 7662 https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7662) so that all APIs/Resources can leverage it and accept or reject the token instead of creating a custom repository at our end to blacklist these tokens.

  16. Getting more granular permissions with Graph API and SPO sites

    Do we have any plans to allow Azure AD-registered apps accessing Microsoft Graph APIs (such as SharePoint Online) to have more granular permissions? Can we get SharePoint Online (SPO) to enforce more granular authorization rules based on the app identity and some manifest rules to restrict the site collection for example, instead of Sites.Read.All? I am looking for something like this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/security-apponly-azureacs, but for Azure-AD apps (where we can specify really granular permissions).

    This question is around the ability to customize Microsoft Graph APIs such as SharePoint Online APIs to restrict the site collections that can be accessed by…

  17. Show the Country and App/OS that triggered the MFA request via Authenticator app pop up

    If using the Microsoft Authenticator app with App Notifications for Azure MFA requests why can't we also have the Country and App or OS which has triggered the MFA request?

    This will help users from blindly always tapping Approve and also give them more info on what app has requested MFA.

    You can already see this info in the Azure AD sign in and audit logs so why can't it be pushed through to the app pop-ups too?

    We are planning to provide a migration path to customers from MFA server to cloud MFA.

    If you are using voice and SMS, you can already use the Authentication methods APIs to migrate the data: https://docs.microsoft.com/graph/api/resources/authenticationmethods-overview

    If you are using the Authenticator app, users can enable Phone Sign-in to authenticate without passwords in the cloud: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/authentication/howto-authentication-passwordless-phone#azure-mfa-server

  19. Capture and display a last login date

    When reviewing a user's profile, a last login date for any Azure AD/Office 365 login should be captured/displayed, so that admins can evaluate inactive users for account disable and license recovery.
